"I think this team needs time to hang around together. That is why this road trip is going to be very good. We’re going to have a few days off after the Toronto game. It’s going to be very important for this hockey club right now. This is a great group of guys here. We can turn this around." - Teemu SelanneThe Ducks left Monday morning for a three-game swing through Eastern Canada in which they faced the Maple Leafs on Tuesday, the Ottawa Senators on Friday and the Montreal Canadiens on Saturday. Anaheim leaves the region as the third team since 1992-93 to complete a sweep of those teams.
It was the first visit to the area for the Ducks in the regular season since 2005-06.
The sweep was a good step forward for the Ducks after a slow start that saw them go 1-5-0.
Here is a look at the team’s week of action that featured games at
